they're gathering in beijing for a strategic and economic dialogue. u.s. authorities emain charged five chinese officers with commercial spying. sayin said. the case. shows u.s. leaders aren't sincere about addressing cyber security and he said their attitude has damaged trust which is you doing to me phone. china continues to call in the u.s. to correct the erroneous and create conditions enabling. dialogue and cooperation lives by the issues. some volatility and. sunset prosecutor should withdraw but charges against the also stores and he suggested chinese officials would pull out of this caution from cyber security. with their american counterparts. and both sides are hoping they'll be able to resolve some of their issues during their talks matthew goodman served as an economic advisor to u.s. president barack obama. and h.k. was a close how could i ask him what to expect.
4:19 pm
first of all i'd like to ask you what the focus of the strategic and economic dialogue will be this time. one issue that has been a constant refrain between the u.s. and china on the economic side. is the foreign exchange. question. and it's frankly unfair. is the term that. even secretary lew the treasury secretary use the other day. so i think that one will be. as always a high priority. the two sides also have been negotiating a bilateral investment treaty and. last year there was quite a breakthrough because china. was willing to negotiate. that treaty. on the basis that the united states wants to see which is the so-called negative list approach to regulation and. fair to equal treatment of investors. even before they have stablished their position in a country. so that will be a major focus of the bilateral investment treaty. there is a. still.
4:20 pm
concern about the position of xi jinping the president of china. and his position. in power and he's clearly trying to consolidate his power. has been very effective in doing that. but as part of that he's been launching or following through on a very. strong forceful anti corruption campaign. which is targeted. some very senior officials as well as lower level officials. and that's creating a bit of a chill. over the the. policy making process in china where people are kind of afraid to make decisions. so i think that's potentially a problem for economic reform. in china and possibly for other issues. both high seem to have less leverage. compared to the past. what do you think is the food that can be devised the dialogue. i don't see any really major breakthroughs.
4:21 pm
so for example i mentioned that there is a negotiation over the bilateral investment treaty. i don't think there will be agreement on a bilateral investment treaty announced. i think people can be very cynical about this because it seems on some level like just a bunch of hot air. but. i actually think dialogue is very important between these two countries given. how big we are. how much. we have both in common and. you know in areas of difference. and i think we just. we need to continue to talk to each other so we're. we're sure that we don't make any miscalculations based on misunderstanding i think it's very important that we understand each other better. even if we don't agree. if we want. this truce to remain would you introduce the tokyo market. in markets around the world from the decision that could change the course of an economy. because then you ask for an exchange. up to the minute.
4:22 pm
